Group Offers Chesapeake Bay Recommendations To VA

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is recommending actions that Virginia's elected officials can take to ensure efforts to restore the bay are successful.
    
A plan released Tuesday by the foundation recommends five actions to reduce pollution, restore fisheries and educate future leaeders.
    
The recommendations include reducing farm runoff pollution, helping localities reduce urban runoff pollution, boosting oysters and the oyster fishery and restoring Atlanic menhaden.

The plan also recommends establishing a commission that would be charged with ensuring that all Virginia students are environmentally literate when they graduate.
